"I am ugly, but I have a beautiful mind." -- Nouriel RoubiniYesterday afternoon, Nouriel Roubini was the speaker at the Summer Institute lecture series at the Jewish Center of the Hamptons. I attended Nouriel's talk on Sunday, having previously presented my own talk at the Temple's Summer Institute lecture series exactly a year ago in the same forum and on the same subject: the economy and the stock market. In the interests of full disclosure, I have been critical (perhaps, at times, too critical) about:
- the way in which the media have embraced Nouriel;
- in Nouriel's apparent inflexibility and dogma; and
- in his inaccurate stock market forecasts.
